Things To Consider When Choosing A Photographer

  1. Have a clear idea of the style you are looking for and make sure your photographer understands your vision.
  2. Get to know your photographer beforehand and be sure to look at some of his or her past work prior to scheduling. 
  3. Ask about the turnaround time, especially if you are using the photos for graduation announcements, save-the-dates, or your annual Christmas card. 
  4. If you have any specific ideas or shots in mind, make sure you write them down before the shoot so that you don’t forget anything. 
  5. Make sure you’re well aware of your photographer’s pricing and likewise, that he or she is aware of your budget!
